Stephen,

Another beautiful solar sketch. What is the effective magnification limit for the best close up views?

Frank :)

I figured there was no reason to start a new thread each time, already have that in the solar section...

Hope you bought a ticket because the Promapalooza Tour is back!

I have a ticket but somebody packed clouds in the case. Bummer.

NICE sketches, Amigo! Thanks for letting me observe vicariously through them :p

Stephen,

Excellent observations of solar prominences along the solar limb. It must have been quite a show. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Your excellent documentation as always. Nice sketch work :bow: :bow: :bow:.

You have enticed me to look at the sun soon; as soon as the clouds clear here.

Thanks for posting your work here as I hardly get to the solar sites lately,

Mark

Thanks ya'll!

Got a late view in today, sun was high and there was some limb turbulence so I'm sure I missed some details...

Stephen,

Excellent new views of the solar surface. The two new active regions look interesting. You have captured a good amount of prominence activity as well. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
